Uncertainty concerns Hazard

11 June 2018 05:05:21 EST

Eden Hazard has cast doubt on his Chelsea future by saying he wants to know whether Antonio Conte will still be manager next season.

The Italian was expected to leave Stamford Bridge this summer but, more than three weeks after he guided the Blues to an FA Cup final victory against Manchester United, he is still in charge.

Hazard is keen to know if Conte will still be at the club when the new Premier League season gets underway in two months' time and whether any new players will be bought.

When asked if his future at Chelsea depended on who was in charge next season, Belgium international Hazard said: "Yeah I want to know. I want to know, but like I say I am focused on the World Cup.

"If we have something new - manager or players - it is always good to know it because I want players that can [help bring success back to] Chelsea next season."

Meanwhile, the 27-year-old accepts that Belgium need to do well at this summer's tournament as the current crop of players, like himself, Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku, are at the peak of their powers.

"I think that we are all in top shape," Hazard added. "Kevin at Manchester City, Romelu at Manchester United, me at Chelsea, Thibaut [Courtois] at Chelsea.

"We all play in great clubs, we all had good seasons. So if we want to do something great, it is now. The time isn't in one, two or four years. I think now is the moment to be together and do something great."

Chelsea can be backed at 4/6 to finish in the top four of the Premier League in 2018/19 while Belgium are available at 17/2 to win the World Cup and at 6/4 to beat England on 28th June.
